Switzerland Innovation & Medtech

As a part of Korea International Medical & Hospital Equipment Show (KIMES) 2021, Swiss Business Hub Korea at the Embassy of Switzerland is pleased to host a Switzerland Innovation & Medtech Webinar together with Korea Medical Device Manufacturing Industry Cooperative Association (KMDICA).

Interested to find out what convinced global medtech players such as J&J Medical, Medtronic and B.Braun to choose Switzerland as a business location? Covering the entire value chain from manufacturers, suppliers, service providers to trade & distribution - the Swiss medtech industry proves to be strong and unique. 

Swiss manufacturers such as Roche Diagnostics, Sonova, Straumann and Ziemer Ophthalmic Systems are renowned leaders in the production of hospital and laboratory equipment as well as consumables, in the fields of rehabilitation, prosthetics, orthotics, dental care and in vitro diagnostics. The combination of first-class research facilities and a highly developed healthcare sector makes Switzerland an extremely attractive location for medtech research, development and production.

If you are planning to expand your business into Europe and considering Switzerland as a business location or an innovative R&D partner, please join us at this webinar. It will help you gain knowledge on Swiss advanced medtech industry and its ecosystem as well as guide you how to enter into European medtech markets.
